Personal Description:

I recently graduated from the University of Bristol having read Classical Studies, a subject encompassing history, literature, philosophy and visual culture which required very strong essay writing, research and critical thinking skills.

I am a dyslexic and a dyspraxic and I have managed to achieve academic success through a good understanding of a variety of learning methods and strategies, many of which would be useful even for children who do not have dyslexia or dyspraxia.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had no formal teaching experience but have provided one on one tuition to the children of family friends on an ad hoc basis in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to one-to-one tutoring would of course vary depending on the needs of the tutee, but in general my belief is that when given the right opportunities, comprehension and insightful observations come intuitively to a child, but the specifics of the examiner's mark scheme do not. As a result, my approach aims to initially nurture enthusiasm and then to work to create structures and strategies for essay writing and exam answers which can be adapted to the specific question or essay quickly and easily. In short, the approach is to instil a genuine interest in the subject while also jumping through the examiner's hoops.

Furthermore, I aim to provide (if needed) useful techniques for memorisation and revision employing oral, aural, visual and/or kinesthetic methods.
